                  I use the product with or without foundation. It's extremely silky and velvety on the skin. I have super oily skin and this is the only product that keeps me matte all day. I can even sweat and it stays on and keeps my make up in place. I will never go without this product again, I'm so happy I found it!

                  I have sensitive oily skin. Thought this would be a great product for me. Unfortunately this primer did not perform. No noticeable benefits. Also cause my skin to break out in those small under the skin whitehead bumps. Thankfully ulta has a great return policy.

                      We do not claim that this product is waterproof, though it does feature a long wearing formula and helps to extend the wear of your foundation.

                    Can I use both this primer and the ulta bb cream together? Would that be better or should I just use one, and if yes which one primer or bb cream?

                      A:

                      Because BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20 provides priming benefits, you may wish to use it alone rather than layer it over a primer; however, if you have especially oily or blemish-prone skin, you can certainly layer Matte Prime underneath BB Cream to help keep skin mattified and shine-free, since Matte Prime is formulated with salicylic acid to treat acne and balance oil production.

                      Yes, this primer is noncomedogenic, meaning that it won't clog pores or cause breakouts. It works wonderfully for all skin types, especially oily and/or acne-prone skin!

                    I have extremely oily skin and find that primers with silica in them tend to separate and make my skin even oilier. Will this primer do that on my skin?

                      A:

                      No, this primer is ideal for oily/very oily skin that is prone to breakouts, and it should not separate on your skin. Apply just a pea-sized amount to your entire face for best results. The salicylic acid and mattifying powders will help to keep your skin shine-free and to prevent breakouts and pore congestion.

                      ULTA brand products are never tested on animals. We do not claim that ULTA brand products are vegan, as some may contain animal-derived ingredients such as carmine. ULTA Matte Prime is not formulated with any animal-derived ingredients.
